U.S. appeals court rejects moratorium on deepwater drilling in Gulf

Documents shows all judges had ties to the oil industry-

So do we have a problem with the neutrality of our federal courts?  The judge of the original jurisdiction in Louisiana’s federal district court who rejected the moratorium was loaded down with oil and gas stocks too.

Fortunately, the Administration said the Interior Department would immediately issue a new moratorium if it lost this appeal.

I have a problem with Governor Bobby Jindal saying the oil gusher has caused widespread job loss.  Therefore, let’s go full speed ahead with deepwater drilling on what are probably more botched permits so we can have jobs.  Oh yes, and he will want plenty of financial aid to deal with oil washing up.

    Why Ralph – you sound like the conservatives criticizing the neutrality of the federal courts. Just kidding – it is very obvious that those judges have their own oil-influenced agenda. But, I am sure the republicans would deny that to the end. It is only the judges who rule for progressives who are “activist judges”. You betcha!
